Why choose a University elective?

A University elective lets you:

  • Add value to your program/degree
  • Pursue one of your interests
  • Explore an area that is new to you

Rules for University electives

Associate degree, bachelor degree and four-year honours programs offer the following minimum credit points for university undergraduate electives:

  • Associate degree: 12 credit points
  • Bachelor degree (three or four years) or four year bachelor honours: 24 credit points

You can enrol in courses with prerequisites and corequisites, however it is your responsibility to check the relevant Course guide to make sure that you have met the requisites. 

You can't enrol in too many University electives. Your program only allows a certain number of credit points for University electives. If you want to take additional classes that are not part of your program requirements, you can do this as a Single or Short Course.

Some courses have a restriction on the number of enrolments allowed. Once a course is full you will not be permitted to enrol in the course.

RMIT University reserves the right to not offer courses that fail to meet a minimum enrolment of 25 students.
